What advice would you give to the next Prime Minister?

My advice would be that no matter what you do while in office your time as PM will end in ignominy like those before you so make every conceivable effort to feather your own nest and belt feed everyone the middle finger once you leave No.10 for your subsequent book tours, public speaking etc.

1. Make better decisions

Use decision making tools such as Plan/Do/Check/Act (PCDA - the Deming Cycle) or Six Thinking Hats to avoid policy blunders.

2. Be agile

Be ready to adapt policy to reality, or to fit changing circumstances. Small changes of detailed policy are not U turns, but fine tuning.

3. Remember all the value in life comes from integration

Be a one nation leader, remembering all four component parts of Britain. Think of education and employment as related, as are health and social care, and foreign policy and defence. Deterrence is more cost effective than warfighting but is a constant endeavour, preventative medicine will reduce acute health costs, and rehabilitation will reduce social care needs - train and employ more Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists. Tailoring the education system to the likely future of employment will be infinitely better than going back to the old days.

4. Geography matters

The United Kingdom will always been part of Europe, but we can more accurately be described as a 'Euro-Atlantic' nation than a 'European' one. That gives us unique strengths and opportunities as well as threats and vulnerabilities. Threats may vary with political leaders coming and going, but vital interests do not.

5. To err is human...

From time to time mistakes will happen - whether policy or personal failings. Own up, take ownership, and the furore will soon go away.
 
Make sure they never find Sunak's body. Find a way to make Gove completely toothless. Have a ruthless clear out of centre-left MPs or it'll be a bloodbath at the next GE.

Won't happen though, as Truss is one of those who should be scrapped.
 
Surround yourself with the best people possible, based on merit and the ability to provide the best results.

Then give them the environment to do their best work.

"What advice would you give to the next Prime Minister?"

Don't bother, go and do a job less stressful.... like shark wrestling.
 
Sort the people smuggling racketeers in the first month.
Halve the vat rate on fuel, Now.
Instruct the Irish ambassador in private that any more interference in Northern Irelands affairs by Eire or Brussels and the CTA goes before Christmas..
that’s a start.
 
  • There is no climate catastrophe, and the world will not end today, tomorrow or next year, so don't screw over the majority electorate to appease the green minority, or the self-serving eco-industry

  • Put identity politics back in its box

  • Stop benefits being a lifestyle choice. Also, get the idle and lazy back into work, but for God's sake, do it properly rather than outsourcing to the most incompetent and lowest bidders. Pay people Benefits via named vouchers. Turn public opinion back to the way is was in the 60's and 70's, where benefits were an umbrella and society understood it was a short term help-you-out measure, not a free pass to sit on your arse for the rest of your 'working' life

  • House those how really need it, and make the decisions and process transparent. 18yr old fücked-up girls, need support, good parenting and stability. What they don't need is some undeserved house that can't afford to run, manage properly and is the occasional abode to their abusive, drug-dealing boyfriends.

  • Get a grip of immigration. Why does it seem to be a dirty word, yet for other countries you have to jump through hoops to get in. We're an Island FFS! It can't be that difficult to protect our own borders. Deport anyone who isn't genuine, and in that, I mean actually have a well funded, resourced and fit-for-purpose Immigration Service that isn't rubbing stamping asylum applications just to avoid lengthy backlog

  • Err . . That's it for now

Sort out immigration, by getting the army and navy involved and turn the boats back, send back all the rest of the illegals too. Sick of seeing Turkish barbers, car washes, pizza shops, delivery drivers taking over the place its a peaceful invasion.

Fire every single D & I tsar in the public sector.

Start calling the Police a force and make them a force, introduce min height requirements, stop just employing females and minorities to tick a box, employ ex-forces and match their militaty wages until the timescale when they would normally move up. Eg a stripey could make an excellent Bobby but would take a massive pay cut.


Cut out any form of wokery from everywhere, stop with the trans rubbish, non-binary rubbish and being ashamed of what made this Country the best in the world and start cleaning up the place. Wokery is Communism in action.

Frack.

Stop building on Greenbelt and subsidise farmers, we need to start producing more of our own food. The reason they need to build houses is because the indiginous are moving to the new estates and the immigrants are moving into the Council estates and inner City terraces. So we lose greenery and woodland for what?

Start paying reservists based on a 5 day week rather than a 7.

Everyone who got furloughed to pay back that money through slightly higher taxes, the ones that worked through it and didn't get furlough should get a slight tax drop.

Every illegal waiting to be deported can stop smoking outside hotels all day and get off their backsides and go and pick up litter or cut grass verges, make themselves useful.

Jawohl
 
Get rid of the BBC Charter, the Licence Fee, the BBC's manifold headquarters building, the Crapita contract for collecting the Licence Fee, any cooperation with the BBC, and anything else that would get rid of that organization's treacherous and insidious sabotaging of the instruments of state.

Lest they do to Truss what they were allowed to do to Johnson.
Wow, so much hatred...Do you feel much better now?

My advice to whoever gets to be PM is to watch your back from the usual suspects on the back benches, but in particular, those who were expected to run this time, but didn’t, because they were happy for someone else to pick up the shit sandwich this time around.
Politics - a nasty, nasty business!

Keep your friends close - and your enemies even closer!
 
So did their friends and that is part of the problem! That said, what happens in UK pales into insignificance compared to what goes on in many countries of the world, including the US (where pork-barrel politics is the base currency of government)..
US is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Look how corrupt the FBI is and the bias towards Trump and how Hunter Biden has been treated in comparison, look how Pelosi's drunk driver husband is evading the same justice someone else would face. The corruption in the US government is rife, they steal from the people constantly.
